Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1861" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2091 after 14 days on 30 July 2091 at 12:01.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 14:15 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1132 of Meeus index or 2085 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 6 minutes is the length of new lunation 1132. It is 53 minutes longer than next lunation 1133 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 38 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 31 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠280.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠310.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
6 days after point of apogee on 9 July 2091 at 13:01 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 July 2091 at 04:02 in ♎ Libra.

11 days after its descending node on 5 July 2091 at 03:56 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 July 2091 at 10:20 in ♍ Virgo.

1 day after previous North standstill on 15 July 2091 at 05:57 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.955°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.921° in the next southern standstill on 28 July 2091 at 05:06 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
